Interval Estimation of the Parameters of the Multinomial Distribution

by Juan Carlos Correa .

Abstract: The multinomial distribution is one of the most used in practical applications as a generalization of the binomial distribution. The binomial has been widely studied by the researchers in relation with interval estimation. We compare several formulas proposed to construct confidence intervals for the parameters of the multinomial distribution via simulation.
